IAM Global Leaders 2020

January 2020

IAM has launched a new publication IAM Global Leaders. It features interviews with many of the world’s foremost private practice patent experts.

All the leaders listed as IAM Global Leaders merit special attention not only because of their expertise and experience relating to creating, protecting, managing, transacting and enforcing critical patent rights, but also for their ability to innovate, inspire, and go above and beyond to deliver for their clients.

The firm is delighted to announce that Partner Dr Gary Wilson has been listed in this ground-breaking publication.

IAM says: “Gary Wilson doesn’t just engage in patenting as an academic exercise – he is a commercial thinker whose advice goes to the heart of clients’ businesses and both their short and long-term objectives. Steeped in chemical, pharmaceutical and mechanical technologies, he demonstrates impressive industry range.”
